Newell Air System Fundamentals
At the 2019 NewellGurus Rally in Foley, AL, Richard Entrekin gave a presentation on the Fundamentals of the Newell Air System. I had several requests to record and post this session.

To make this information more view-able, I split the presentation into 6 videos. The links to the videos are listed below:

Thanks to Richard and Steve for sharing this info they have acquired over the years and to Michael for the video.

I've already watched them on YouTube. They were very informative, thanks guys! Are any other presentations going to be posted?
Life is what you make it.
Only had a chance to watch part of the first one, but this is invaluable to neophytes, like me! Can't thank you enough, Richard and Michael.

I havebeen remiss in posting the specific air system rescue parts I mentioned in the videos. Here is list of the quick connects and plugs that can be used to repair a blown line, or cap a line while on the road.

I recommend that you go back and use compression style fittings to make a more permanent repair. You will want about 4 each of 1/4, 3/8. and 1/2 Straight Connectors Tube. You also want 2 each of 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 Plugs. The plug will turn the straight connector into a deadhead cap for an airline.

I also recommend that you carry lengths of 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 DOT airline.

Anyway, this will get you fishing around in the McMaster catalog for high quality air fittings.

As always, use DOT approved fittings instead of the Home Depot/ACE/Lowes fittings. There is a difference in the robustness of the fitting. One broken 1/4 fitting can leak enough to keep you from building air pressure. No air = no go.
